Hip pain in Hemiplegia CP
For many years after walking for awhile my hip on my affected side starts to really hurt. I also find I struggle to walk all together with burning pains in both legs and struggling to move them. I have to hold on to something to walk. Hence seeking help from the Wheelchair Service. Yesterday I had a visit from a physiotherapist. She says I have a weak hip with muscles that are not doing much for me. My hamstring is very tight. She also discovered a 2 cm discrepancy in leg length. She says usually all the muscles in hemiplegic’s hips are tight. Has given me some exercises and referred me to orthotics for their opinion. Possible shoe raise or back in leg splints! I have noticed that my hemi foot has started turning outwards. I did have an operation to get me out of leg splints when I was 12 and haven’t been in a leg splint since I was 14.
